This is an amazing foundation, I have repurchased on many occasions (usually when it's bonus time)

I have oily skin so the formulation works wonders, keeping the shine at bay all day. Yes I repeat ALL DAY! It literally doesn't budge. I have a few shades depending on whether I've applied tan, I sometimes mix them together too to create the perfect match.

What …

Powder - bareMinerals - Original SPF 15 Foundation

Oct/03/2013

I make such a mess when I'm using this, all that swirling and tapping of the brush seems to get the powder everywhere!

I like the idea of using natural and light foundations on my skin, but the coverage on this is rubbish. I almost gave up on it altogether...but then I found its a good partner in crime when teamed up with a BB cream. This still makes me feel I'm not putting …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Cremesheen - Creme d'Nude

And my search for a nude lipstick continues... So many people have positive things to say about this lipstick, and I agree with a lot of it. However it just looks awful on me.

My lips are naturally really dark and I think this lipstick is a little too pigmented for me, it looks unnatural as if I've confused my lipstick with concealer!

I like the consistency of this …

Lips - Maybelline New York - Baby Lips - Peppermint

Sep/22/2013

This product has just launched in the UK and I was so excited to use it after all the hype from America. With so many tasty flavours it took me ages to decide upon the peppermint version, I mainly chose this as it was colourless.

The minty smell is very mild and doesn't last long. Normally mint products leave a tingly sensation that cools and refreshes...not this one though. My …

Fragrances - Juicy Couture - Viva La Juicy NOIR

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/22/2013

I received a sample of this in a beauty box and I'm so pleased I did as I would have never even tried it otherwise. There's something about the Juicy Couture brand that I find cheap and tacky (this May be due to the velour, bejewelled tracksuits they were infamous for).

This smells really grown up, floral but not too sweet. It's hypnotic and different. Seriously give …

Fragrances - Coty - Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker

Sep/22/2013

This is my favourite day time perfume. It has such an unusual fresh smell to it that draws many compliments.

The vintage style bottle looks so pretty sat on my dressing table, you would never think it was a celebrity fragrance.

I find that it doesn't last a particularly long time on the skin so I do have to have a lunch time spritz to top it up. I love the smell so much …

Fragrances - Calvin Klein - Euphoria Eau de Parfum

Sep/22/2013

My first ever encounter of Euphoria was when a colleague of mine walked past, leaving a gorgeous trail of scent behind her. I immediately had to ask what the perfume was and buy it at the next available opportunity.

Sometimes what smells absolutely lovely on other people is completely intolerable on me (Angel, Daisy, Mademoiselle) so I was delighted when this agreed with me …

Gels/ Soaps - LUSH - Honey I Washed the Kids Soap

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/22/2013

This soap is simply divine, I'm not usually a fan of honey/caramel aromas but this has a really fresh, clean scent to it that's almost good enough to eat! The smell fills the whole bathroom when you use it, and it lingers on the skin in a subtle, refreshing way.

The soap lathers really well and I haven't found it drying or irritating on he skin. My only criticism is that …

Eyeliner - Maybelline New York - Eye Studio Master Precise Ink Pen Liner

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/09/2013

This eyeliner is ideal for novices, the super fine tip means you can get it extra close to the lash line creating a really subtle daytime look. This can then be built up to create more drama, and the flexibility means its ideal for creating foxy little feline flicks.

The only flaw is that the pen tip can dry out quickly so be sure to put the lid on securely. At drugstore prices though …

Sep/09/2013

As a girl who loves her beauty sleep I'm a big fan of multi tasking products that can mean an all important 5 minutes extra in bed. Therefore I'm on the hunt for a perfect BB/CC cream that I can quickly apply before work.

This small tube claims big things
- flawless coverage
- perfectly even skin texture
- fresh dewy glow
- 24 hour hydration
- SPF …
